Frederick and Western Maryland Travel Guide


Tiny Oakland, perched on a mountain plateau at the far western end of the state, is a true escape from the big-city bustle. Its heyday was in the late 1800s, when a number of opulent hotels catered to vacationers brought by the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad. Saunter through the quaint antiques shops that line downtown's recently restored brick paths and you'll feel that you've traveled to another time.
